Hi! My name is Sara Butt and I will be a full time missionary in Tete, Mozambique with Pioneer61, a partner of Iris Global.
Pioneer 61’s mission is based on the commissioning in Isaiah 61. Their main goal is to rescue, equip, and send the people in Mozambique into their God given identity and purpose. They build healing homes to rescue orphans and disciple widows in the truth of the gospel. They also help rescue women in brothels while discipling them to walk out their God given identity.
Pioneer61 is focused on preaching the good news of the gospel of Christ to anyone and everyone they meet across the way. I was with Pioneer61 in 2022 and I’m excited to go back as a full time missionary for one year. I will be involved with teaching at their school, Shekinah Academy. This is a Christ centered school, that focuses on raising up the next generation. I have been a teacher for a few years, and I am excited to be able to continue with this passion in Mozambique.
I will also be involved in the widow’s program that runs weekly. Many women have been abandoned by their families or have lost family members and have no one to care for them. Through the widow’s program, these ladies are placed into community where we love on them with the love of Jesus to help them have a space to belong, to heal, and to be cared for both spiritually and physically. I will be distributing food and household necessities to the ladies in the widow’s program. There is nothing like sitting with these ladies who have so much joy and wisdom to share.
With Pioneer61, I will also be going into some dark places such as brothels and bars and help rescue women from these living circumstances. We will have a weekly bible study in the bars and brothels with these women while empowering them to walk out in their freedom and identity as daughters of God.
I will also be involved with a street ministry that Pioneer61 runs. We spend time in the streets sharing the gospel of Jesus while worshiping with the people and providing a meal for them. We have seen many give their lives to Jesus through this ministry and I am excited to see many more come to Jesus by going out into the streets and sharing his love with the people in Mozambique who are so hungry for truth and hope.
I will be so honored if you would prayerfully consider partnering with me financially and in prayer as I follow the leading of Jesus in my life. I believe Jesus has given me a calling and a heart to see the homeless and broken restored, to see abandoned children belong and have a home, to feed the hungry, pray for the sick, and love on people with the love of Christ.
As I will be fully volunteering my time in Mozambique, I would appreciate financial support to assist me with my flights and daily expenses to fulfill my duties in the ministry.
In Isaiah 61:1-3 it is written, “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, Because the Lord has anointed Me to preach good news to the poor; He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn, To console those who mourn in Zion, To give them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning, The garment of praise for the sprit of heaviness; That they may be called oaks of righteousness, The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.”
